    Not all records import - please help!

    I have narrowed it down to my "Comments" column. I have 508 records in XLS and import will import 447. I know it has to be a character in that field. Does anyone know what characters would cause this? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Also look at characters used in the windows locales. Mappoint uses them in the csv files, so maybe could be a problem with the import too.
